Park Owners Urged To Be Electric Ready
A specialist manufacturer of electric vehicle (EV) charging points has issued an alert for caravan park owners to be prepared, following a surge in the popularity of EVs and Plug-in Hybrids (PHEVs).
Rolec Services issued the alert after the UK experienced dramatic increases in sales of EVs throughout 2014 and 2015 - matching a global pattern.
Nathan Black, Rolec’s PR & marketing manager, commented: “This monumental increase is set to continue at a rapid rate.
“Figures show that within the next five years there will be over 7.5million EVs on the world’s roads. This clearly illustrates the resources that people will be putting in and we are also getting lots of visitors to the UK looking for nearby places to charge their vehicles.”
Sales of EVs at the end of 2015 are expected to have quadrupled 2014 sales figures, leading to larger quantities of EV drivers on the UK’s roads, many of which will be visiting leisure sites around the country and will require a charging point to replenish their vehicle’s battery.
Award-winning Rolec provides the widest range of electric vehicle charging points in Europe and has manufactured and supplied over 30,000 charging points throughout the UK in the past two years.
